Hydrogen-Producing Rooftop Solar Panels: The Future of Clean Energy

Here’s an article posted in PV Magazine.

According to the article,

  • Researchers at KU Leuven have developed hydrogen-producing rooftop solar panels that are nearing commercialization.
  • The panels are compatible with common PV mounting structures and use non-precious materials to keep costs affordable.
  • The researchers have tested several prototypes since the project launch in 2011 and are ready to launch industrial production of hydrogen panels.
